I really, really enjoyed that. I thought you did a wonderful job of mixing in bits from canon with your own spin on events. It was lovely to see Petunia's human side... she took Harry in for a reason, and I hope she'll come around eventually in her relationship with him.
You've done a lovely job! I'm looking forward to reading more of your work in the future!
Wow... that's all I can say. Wow. I'm so happy someone wrote a story that showed the relationship between Lily and Petunia as something beautiful. They couldn't have always hated each other... I adore the story, congrats.
A wonderful interweaving of the past and present in a very believable way. I liked the way you fleshed out Petunia in a very human way. She felt full of contradictions and fears and ultimately, the kind of woman who would take Harry in, but not neccesarily for her sisters sake.
A well crafted piece and very thought-provoking. I think I need to read it again.
